It's bad enough the city of Madison needed to take a day every year and inconvenience everyone downtown with its asinine 'Ride the Drive' day, when bicyclists get the streets to themselves and cars aren't allowed on the roads. Now, because the program's been so "successful," Mayor Dave has announced a SECOND 'Ride the Drive' day will be held over Labor Day weekend. The Mayor says the day is so citizens can see Madison in a different way. But the message the city is sending with things like this and the new red 'bikes only' boxes at intersections is clear - they want everyone to bike to work and pretty much bike everywhere. I don't doubt that there are people who enjoy 'Ride the Drive,' but I think there are a lot more people who hate it and resent the way the city tries to tell us how to live our lives.
